“Once the registration process is completed, we send you an easy-to-use stool sample kit. The kit includes a small tube, toilet accessory and scoop. The stool sample will tell us all we need to know about your gut microbiome.

“You will also be asked to fill out a short questionnaire and provide us with a simple HbA1c blood test result.”

Samples are analyzed through DayTwo’s patent pending algorithm qhich the company says produces a “unique nutritional profile designed just for you.”

A study by the Weizmann Institute found that the bacterial population of the colon contributes to each person’s digestion of different foods in a unique way. Knowing what you have in your body lets you adjust your diet ti what is most healthy for you.
